Glazed-Chicken Spinach Salad
Ingredients
1
recipe Ginger-Apple-Glaze
4
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 14 lb. total)
 
Nonstick cooking spray
2
medium apples, cored and sliced
1

Add 1/4 cup of the Apple Glaze and the apple juice; bring to boiling. Add spinach; toss just until wilted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
